Deleted the following:

  • Inspector Javert: During the 'Cyndi Kidnapping Whodunnit' storyline, Aggie immediately suspects Brandi and tells the police about an incident when Brandi thwacked a racist classmate. When Penny askes why, Aggie says it's a moral imperative to turn Brandi in because she believes people should be brought to justice, especially after she witnessed the courtcase against the driver who killed her mother. Just one problem; her evidence is only very circumstantial and she was completely wrong. She was never gets called out on this and Brandi never got angry at her.

Reason: This is inaccurate and smacks of Complaining About Characters You Don't Like. Here's why: 1) Aggie never said she thought Brandi had definitely done it. She said she thought she might have done it. That was a not unreasonable assumption, considering that she had only a few months before seen Brandi commit what was a felonious assault (knocking someone unconscious), and not in self-defence. 2) Aggie, in her police interview, initially tried to hold it back, and only caved when the FBI agent kept pressuring her. Hardly a case of zealous, grudge-bearing Inspector Javert behaviour. 3) So, Aggie was "completely wrong." Fine. At both of these points in the story, remember, the reader didn't know who the culprit was, either. 4) Aggie is not a Karma Houdini for having acted on her principles, especially after very clear emotional and moral conflict. As for why Brandi didn't get angry at her, Word of God is that Penny never told her that Aggie had mentioned her. Why should she have? What was done was done, and Penny, being good friends with both girls, had no reason to hurt either further by bringing that up.

Why in the world was 'the scrappy' entry taken off the page? Darren was unambiguously hated among the fans, and most people rejoiced when he was put on a bus.

I wasn't the one who removed it, but I believe it's because the policy on TV Tropes now is not to list Subjective Tropes on the main page of a work, and The Scrappy is a trope designated as subjective. What is allowed is putting subjective tropes on a special Your Mileage May Vary page for the work. This webcomic doesn't have one yet, but all it takes is for someone to create it.

It might have been me, I remember doing a cleanup on subjective tropes at some point. And that is why.

Update: I created a YMMV page (accessible from the tab at the top of this one) and moved the tropes now designated by the wiki as subjective there. I also added some new ones, including The Scrappy. If you can't find a trope that used to be on the main page, it may be on the YMMV one.

Can someone explain to me what the hell is going on in this comic? I mean, I get that cyndi lost the election in order to make stan screw up in front of his GF, but I'm kind of lost there. Is she dead?

And the Sara plot arc is beyond my comprehension. Sooo, she's gay. and she was trying to tell this to her mom when she found out that she's been invited to play a role in that play-realityshow-soapopera-whatever. and that the producers were going to try and make heR screw up on stage. WHY??? WHY would they do that? Is that how youth television works? Why did she break down in front of Rich? Did being away from Daph for so long make her want to sleep with her co-stars? Which one was meighan? the producer? who was that girl with Sara on opening night? What did they do? I can't follow anymore.

Re Asshole Victim: We don't list "possible" instances of tropes. No need to keep restoring it until we know for sure what Cyndi's fate is.

So is there a trope for an Asshole Victim that doesn't actually die? There should be if there isn't.

I liked the Kick the Son of a Bitch suggestion in response to your query on the forums, so I went with that as an alternative to Asshole Victim.
